The chief executive of Pernod Ricard has said the company is on the search for acquisitions.

Speaking in an interview with La Tribune, published yesterday (22 November), Patrick Ricard said that he will be "present on all fronts" if opportunities arise for acquisitions.

"Buying small local brands fits us. Buying bigger things: we can also do that", he told the newspaper.

Ricard added that the company will have earnings growth, despite dollar fluctuations that cost it €73m in sales in the first nine months of this year.
